you know what they say... if it aint broke dont fix it. i do find something pleasing about the shape.
I had four sections of the rosewood that I tried to butt joint into a bookended square for the lid, but I failed because i couldnt cut the four sides parallel enough for the glue to hold.
But when i start again i will try a 6 sided as i have the cutter for that, so far unused. Apparently it will also make a 12 sided, so i will have to try that as well.
Lots of "honey do's" at the moment, but she goes away for three weeks at easter, so that will be some "me" time.
